We love using our windows for creative activities. Whether it’s making sun catchers to hang up, or making a whole scene like this ocean one, the natural light that comes through your windows makes them a perfect canvas for kids art projects.
This ocean scene was made by R, age 3, together with me. Most of the decorating is really simple to do, so it’s an ideal project for toddlers and preschoolers upwards.
As we’re part of the Bostik Family Blogger Network, we made this craft project from our box this month. To make an ocean window scene you will need:
- 1 sheet blue cellophane
- 1 sheet green cellophane (only a portion of this will be needed)
- 1 sheet shiny blue card
- variety of fish and ocean themed stickers
- Glue stick
- Blu tack
Make four small cuts where each of the inside corners of your border will be, and then cut between each one to make a frame.
Then, your toddler can apply glue all over the back of the frame, on the plain side of the shiny card.
Ocean Scene Invitation to Create
Add your shells onto the frame using Blu tack, and you are done! R really loves blu tack, so when you’re done with the picture it’s fun to play around with the blu tack – stretching it out, squishing it back together, rolling balls with it. It has more resistance than playdough and can be a fun texture for young children to explore.
And there you have your finished ocean scene.
